Well, the shoppers were out at Elkhorn this weekend...

We want to thank our friends who stopped by and found some special treasures...Jeanine from Chippy Shabby stopped by...Angie and John from Viva La Cottage took a drive down from Door County... and especially our regulars who want to see our "new stuff." It is so fun shopping for you and putting new looks together! To our personal friends new and old it was great to see your smiling faces and catch up! Please check out Mark's blog from ROOM 363 to see all of the great items that were out there this weekend...Don't miss September! Thank you Mark for posting pics from our booth! :) Great blog!

Thank you again for a great show! We will see you in Elkhorn in September.

Welcome to the Hot Summer!

Mom and I have taken some time off to enjoy the summer days and swim time at the lake. My kids are fish and would stay in the water all day long if I would let them...I hope that you have a place to go when the temperature hits the 100's. My mom and (silent partner) dad were able to take a trip to visit my little sister out in Idaho. We are all so proud of her because she actually camped! (Believe me that is not her kind of thing...) But they got to visit and rest out in the beautiful northwest where there is little humidity.  With all of this summer fun, we are always looking and are some items we found on our last excursion out in the country!
Found this great big bucket of type tray letters ...after digging and ending up with black hands, I was able to spell out this:
What a great VInTage fan!!!
We love old clothespins and the red scale was a must have!
Anyone thinking of organizing?
We are so excited to be a part of this creative outlet and we can not wait to see you in August at Elkhorn, WI...I will check in later with other finds...Stay cool!!! :)
